I was born and raised in Kentucky and had always been proud of its people until the evening of July 12 when a hit-and-run totaled my daughter's car (with her 2 children inside). Two people stopped but no one stopped or chased the criminal to get his tag. He hit two people that night at the Richmond I-75 interchange.

He took away her way to earn a living for her kids (she drives 45 minutes each way to work), her safeness, her good back. There was also a passenger in his vehicle that didn't do a thing. It took a female EKU ball player to pull the door open so my daughter could get out. Lots of people saw the accident but went on their own way.

I've always believed in Kentucky for Kentucky but some of ya'll forgot what that means.
